What Are Obama's Priorities?

I want to tell you about the Black Panther story from the beginning, because something is not right.

On Election Day in 2008, the New Black Panther Party had a national effort to send out its members to polling locations. They called the election an "emergency" situation. Two of those members were caught on tape at a polling location in Philadelphia, in full paramilitary uniform and reportedly brandishing a baton.

One of the Panthers, King Samir Shabazz, was reportedly harassing and intimidating voters and poll workers. This was supposed to be an open and shut case. Former President Bush starts the prosecution before the end of his term, but then President Obama comes in and decides suddenly, in May of 2009, to drop the case. A former Department of Justice official ends up resigning in protest over the case and testifies about it.

Bartel Bull, a civil rights lawyer in the 1960s and the former campaign manager for Robert Kennedy, said it was the "most blatant form of voter intimidation" he had ever seen. That's saying something — and this isn't some right-wing Republican shill. Bull also said the Black Panthers intimidated voters and tried to "interfere with the work of other poll observers," telling one that, "you are about to be ruled by the black man, cracker."

Then this video of one of the accused, King Samir Shabazz was uncovered:

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

SAMIR SHABAZZ: I hate white people — all of them. Every last iota of a cracker — I hate him. Because we're still in this condition.

We didn't come out here to play today. There's too much serious business going on in the black community to be out here sliding through South Street with white, dirty, cracker whore (expletive) on our arms.

You want freedom? You're going to have to kill some crackers. You're going to have to kill some of their babies. Let us get our act together.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

The Obama Justice Department still maintains the case isn't supported by the facts. This racist I just showed you got less than a slap on the wrist. He is not allowed to go to any Philadelphia polling locations... until 2012. Gee, what's going on that year? Oh, and he can still go to polling locations in other towns.

New Black Panther leader Malik Shabazz mocked the outcome:

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

MALIK SHABAZZ, NEW BLACK PANTHER PARTY: King Samir can't go back to polling place until 2012 and I don't think he cares if he goes back to a polling place until 2012.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

Despite all this, there is no interest in the case — a case that shouldn't have been dropped in the first place. Let's look now at the priorities of this president:

The president took 93 days to respond to McChrystal's Afghanistan report

It took the president 57 days to meet with BP's CEO

It took two weeks for the president to make a formal statement on the Christmas Day bomber

477 days since undercover ACORN tapes surfaced, no official investigation

It was 47 days before the White House commented on our Van Jones immigration

Clearly, no rush with any of those decisions. So, what does the president care about?

After the Professor Gates incident, Obama told the nation two days later — admittedly without the facts — that the police "acted stupidly"

Arizona has been begging for border reinforcements for 454 days; it took the Obama administration 78 days to file their lawsuit

The Obama administration took 37 days to order a stop to drilling in the Gulf; after the court overturned the moratorium, it took them eight hours to re-file

Then you have the police shooting case in Oakland. 23-year-old Oscar Grant was being arrested and allegedly resisting when the officer says he tried to shoot him with his Taser. He claims he accidentally pulled his real gun by mistake. He was convicted of involuntary manslaughter.

Protests ensued and it didn't take long before looting and rioting broke out. Over 80 were arrested as windows were smashed, cars were burned and so on. Now, I'm sure there were plenty of legitimately angry, regular citizens there. But there were also lots of signs and groups there. Remember, this is San Francisco — home of Van Jones' STORM and the Ella Baker Center and all sorts of communist groups. They spread the word leading up to the verdict.

Anarchist News wrote: "We are anarchists who live in the Bay. We are outraged by the murder of Oscar Grant, and we are pissed at continuing police violence and disregard of communities' health and safety. We're writing this letter to all the people who are going be in the streets the day of Mehserle's verdict."

The latest edition of Revolutionary Communist Party USA read: "The Whole Damn System is Guilty! We demand Justice for Oscar Grant"

Revolution Books writes: "There are plans for a convergence in downtown Oakland at 14th and Broadway at 6 p.m. on the day the verdict is announced. People need to be there and elsewhere to respond politically to the verdict. And the L.A. Coalition for Justice for Oscar Grant is calling on people to gather at the courthouse."

And The Ella Baker Center: "There has been a city-wide call for folks to come out on the evening of the verdict to 14th and Broadway in downtown Oakland for a rally, speak out and open-mic. Members of the Ella Baker Center team will be out in the streets that evening to stand with the community as we call for justice."

We're dealing with radicals here and these people mean what they say. These aren't empty words. When they say revolution, they mean revolution.

And how long did it take the Department of Justice to respond to Mehserle verdict? Just two hours:

"The Justice Department has been closely monitoring the state's investigation and prosecution. The Civil Rights Division, the U.S. Attorney's Office, and the FBI have an open investigation into the fatal shooting and, at the conclusion of the state prosecution, will conduct an independent review of the facts and circumstances to determine whether the evidence warrants federal prosecution."

The president can say whatever he wants, but the actions of this administration — especially when it comes to radicals — speak volumes.

Countless leaders on the left are now arguing that removing President Donald Trump from office won't be enough — they're now calling for the president's "cult-like" supporters to be "deprogrammed." And it's not just fringe politicians.

During an appearance on "Real Time with Bill Maher" last week, former NBC anchor Katie Couric said, "The question is, how are we going to really almost deprogram these people who have signed up for the cult of Trump."

Former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and Democratic Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi questioned whether the nation needs "a 9/11-type commission" to determine whether President Trump was colluding with Russian President Vladimir Putin "the day that the insurgents invaded our Capitol." Clinton also made sure to include her favorite "deplorables" in her unsubstantiated conspiracy theory:

"But we now know that not just [Trump] but his enablers, his accomplices, his cult members, have the same disregard for democracy," Clinton said to Pelosi.

Washington Post columnist Eugene Robinson and New York Times Magazine's Nikole Hannah-Jones agreed that there is a need for "millions of Americans, almost all white, almost all Republicans" to be deprogrammed and punished, during an MSNBC interview last week.

Now, a story from the Washington Post is also preaching that narrative and even added that we need more restrictions for conservatives on social media and in the broadcast industry.

"So now we have to be deprogrammed? We've heard this over and over and over and over again, for months," said Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday. He read through the shocking details of the Washington Post op-ed and discussed the extraordinary dangers of the latest anti-conservative movement in America.

As calls for censorship and restrictions against conservative voices get louder, Glenn Beck said he feels an "awesome responsibility" to speak, not the words he'd personally like to say, but those he believes the Lord would want him to share.

"It's an awesome responsibility, and one that I am not worthy of," Glenn said. "I want to say ... what He wants me to say. And I have to listen very carefully, because I feel the same way you do. But that will get us nowhere."

Glenn said it's time for Americans who are awake — not woke — to come together, no matter which side of the political aisle you're on, and stand with the truth.

"We are the Alamo, we will stand. But we desperately, desperately need you," Glenn said. "We need the people who are awake — not woke — awake. You may disagree with us. We are your allies, not your enemies. And if you will not stand with us in our hour of need, there will be no one left to stand with you in your hour of need. We must all come together, anyone who is awake."

The incoming Biden administration plans to waste no time in overturning much of the progress achieved by President Donald Trump.

On his radio program Monday, Glenn Beck ran through 10 executive orders President Joe Biden plans to announce on "day one" of his time in office — including rejoining the Paris climate accord, canceling the Keystone pipeline, mask mandates on federal land and during interstate travel, and a proposed federal minimum wage of $15 an hour.

Eric Weinstein, managing director of investment firm Thiel Capital and host of "The Portal" podcast, is not a conservative, but he says conservative and center-right-affiliated media are the only ones who will still allow oppositional voices.

On "The Glenn Beck Podcast" this week, Eric told Glenn that the center-left media, which "controls the official version of events for the country," once welcomed him, but that all changed about eight years ago when they started avoiding any kind of criticism by branding those who disagree with them as "alt-right, far-right, neo-Nazi, etc.," even if they are coming from the left side of the aisle. But their efforts to discredit critical opinions don't stop there. According to Eric, there is a strategy being employed to destroy our national culture and make sure Americans with opposing views do not come together.

"We're trifling with the disillusionment of our national culture. And our national culture is what animates the country. If we lose the culture, the documents will not save us," Eric said. "I have a very strongly strategic perspective, which is that you save things up for an emergency. Well, we're there now."

In the clip below, Eric explains why, after many requests over the last few years, he finally agreed to this podcast.
